Honey Mustard Popsicles

Do you ever have "one of those days"? That was yesterday for me. I slept horribly the night before. J decided he wanted to watch two movies...at the same time. RIP brand new DVD player!

He also dumped a whole bag of crushed up graham crackers all over the kitchen floor and Baby P had a blast playing in the one thing you NEVER want your children to touch, much less play in..............




Yup.

Most days I have it all together; I can multitask with the best of them. Changing diapers, folding laundry, sourcing items for clients, cleaning, cooking, I can do it all. But once in a while I have a day that just feels off.

When The Man got home from work yesterday we had a bunch of stuff to go through in the basement. He worked down there while I folded laundry and the kids played.....it was quiet, calm (for the most part)...I breathed a little easier. I went down to help The Man out for a minute. When we came upstairs we found this situation in the kitchen.

J was making himself some popsicles.
I looked at The Man, The Man looked at me, we both looked at J........................and laughed. We cleaned up the mess and moved on.

These kind of days remind me of this song:

This is the stuff, that drives me crazy,
This is the stuff that getting to me lately,
In the middle of my little mess, I forget how big I'm blessed!

Love that song! I came home yesterday and turned it on and sang along. Twice. As loud as I could. My favorite part (that I keep reminding myself of) is "It might not be what I would choose...but this is the stuff YOU use." :)

Isn't it great to be able to laugh when things go wonky? Honey mustard popsicles=priceless. :)

Hope your week gets better from here!
